Women were dominated from ancient time. Patriarchy reached every corner of our society. Every religion have there own patriarchal outlook and features. Women have there own identity and rational outlook, they also want liberty of thought. But due several social corruption and ignorant behavior of men lead to women down gradation in every field. In this modern world, women education build consciousness of liberty, equality and men domination. The question arrived what women should do when her husband beat or she become a victim of extreme domestic violence. Divorce is only solution for womens to abolish marriage. But divorce lead social stress, aloneness, family pressure etc. This also lead to phobia and women have to fight for there better life. Divorce is easy in modern society but in traditional it is partially impossible.

When women empower themselves they are capable of deciding what is wrong or what is right for themselves and they took decision. It doesn't mean that it is only reason for divorce, divorce can not be a result of only one cause it must be numerous of region. Women empowerment can only provide women that courage to take decision for herself.

It is very serious and important matter in the present time.

Women empowerment means -' Encouraging women for their rights and making them self-dependent. It also helps in the overall development of women.

Govt takes many steps and schemes for women empowerment like " Beti bachao betu padho yojana, Kanya samerdhi yojana, apke beti hamre beti. ".

If we show in every field like politics, sports, defense and education women are doing very well. PV Sindhu and Hima das in sports are doing well. Nirmal siraman nad Dropadi murumu doing well in poltics. So many women are in high posts in business like CEOs and directors .

We should encourage women in every field.

In rural areas, parents understand and encourage women in different fields.

If we know that men and women are an equal parts in progression in society then why we can't encourage women? And why do we suppress women's voices?

Thank You.

Hello everyone my name is Sharif Khan.

Let's come to the topic i.e. Women Empowerment -A cause for Increasing Divorce Rate in India.

Women empowerment means to give powers to women to empower them socially, Politically and Economically to improve their standard of life. We know that about 50% population of our country is women and more 70% population residing in rural areas where lacking basic amenities and status of women is still questionable. Yes women empowerment is one reason behind the Divorce but not only there are so many others reasons which including Extra Marital Affairs of both, Lack of understanding, Age gap, due recognition to opposit gender and to take otherwise to women's.

First of all, Women Empowerment encourages them to take initiative for them. In the past, women were forced to live inside the house, can't get educated, have to put a long veil on her face, were not allowed to speak to male members, were not allowed to take any decisions. They were living like a maid who only had to work in the kitchen. Nothing else, But now the time is changed. They can speak up for their rights. They can take their own decisions. They can make them educated. They have the right to do something for themselves. So, if you say women empowerment is a cause for divorce. I do not agree with this. It is happening because of not spending quality time with each other. They are not have a good conversation. Also, because of misunderstandings!

In my point of view, women's empowerment is beneficial for all women because it encourages them to do something for themselves. Now, women can do whatever they want no one can't stop them from doing anything. That's why we see women give gold medals for us. In the past period, women have no rights and freedom to do anything whatever she wants in her life women in the past period lives there live like a prisoner but today scenario is totally changed women have a right to raise her voice. We can't say that it increases the divorce rate is totally dependent on the misunderstanding between each other like and dislike.

Women empowerment stands for the strength of women with legal rights. It means women have the power to signify their value in the family profession or anywhere. They can fight as they have money and position. So this position and money make them aware and set up their mind to never tolerate any kind of harassment. Even though there are so many causes of divorce and women's empowerment is a responsible reason but I think this is not the only reason behind divorce but women's empowerment can inspire a woman to take divorce.

First of all, I want to tell you about what is women's empowerment?

Women empowerment means to increase the strength of women encourages them to face any difficulties educate them to create awareness about their rights.

Women empowerment is a very much relevant topic in today's society,

We both man and women belong to a species named homo sapiens, so empowerment of women is in such a way it will lead to the progress of the so-called race, I don't believe the woman empowerment is the only driving factor for increasing divorce rate, but as these millennial generation woman is becoming more and more self-independent they will clearly make their decision to move ahead rather than comprising with the male-dominant patriarchal tree, So we must not object the importance of woman empowerment, let she cherish her dreams by seeing the importance of family.

Hello! everyone My name is Rajkumar Pal. I'm from Amroha, Uttar Pradesh. Now I am going to express my views on the topic 'Women Empowerment'. There is no chance of the welfare of the world unless the condition of women is improved. Swami Vivekanand also said- It is not possible for a bird to fly on one wing. So in order to bring gender equality in India women empowerment is necessary. Women empowerment means ' To increase the strength of women socially, economically and emotionally.

Women work 24*7 to raise their children and to maintain their families but they don't get enough recognition for household chores. And women who choose to be homemaker are not considered ed as a working person in the economy of the nation.

But government taken many steps towards women empowerment like government started many schemes -' Sukanya Samridhi Yojna', 'Mission Sakti' etc. And Delhi Government providing free journey for women in city buses etc.

Hi, I am Shilpa.

All we know nowadays women's are doing their best in all the field. They work hard like men and maid their position in every field like education, politics, sports, technology etc.

But some men's have still thought that women's only stay in between 4 walls in this if women are rise a question for there rights, their freedom then some men think that they are hurting their ego, their self-respect but what about women self-respect?

In short, women freedom, rights and also there salaries and position are high compare their partner this may cause one reason for divorce.

Hi everyone.

Gender inequality still exists in this 21st century and sadly some women are still facing the harassment.

You know, some neglected during their childhood on the basis of gender and when they are growing they have to endure eve-teasing and of course they get limited employment opportunities.

We should keep in mind that women constitute half of the society so women empowerment is important for all of us.

I think first we must start educating all the women.

Education is the most important thing to all so it should be given to all and as a responsible person, we have to keep doing something better for women without a hitch. That's all.

Hello everyone,

Very good morning to all of you. Today we have to discuss women empowerment a cause for increasing divorce rate in India, let's start then.

First of all, we have to understand women empowerment. Women empowerment means empowering woman and give them equal rights same as a man to make their own decisions for their personal development and social development too. It means encouraging them to face difficulties in any situation. I don't think that women empowerment increases the divorce rate in India because women empowerment and divorce are two different things. There is no relation between them. Divorce happening in India due to the misunderstanding between the couples. We all know that the population of women in India is almost the same as men. Today women are doing great in many things like sports, Education, medical sectors etc. So, I think we should see women empowerment positively.

Hello, Friends good evening, afternoon and evening to all of you,

Now I would like to come on the topic. The topic is given to us women empowerment - a cause for increasing divorce rate in India. Women empowerment is empowering to take their own decisions for their personal and social development and would also mean encouraging women to be self-reliant and have generated them to face any problem in their lives with courage.

If we think women empowerment is a cause of increasing divorce rate in India it is a gesture towards our backward thinking. There is no relationship between this and that. The increasing divorce rate is due to misunderstanding between spouse's and domestic violence, harassment from in-laws and dowry system etc.

Friends, as we all know our today's topic is women empowerment -A cause for increasing divorce rate in India. Friends the population of girls is almost equal to the population of boys in India so if girls are empowering then it means that our country is also empowering so we all should take this in a positive way and not in a negative way. Women are empowering day by day in various fields like education, sports, politics, health sector, etc. For example in sports PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal is performing very well in badminton, Mary com in boxing, Mira Bai Channu in weight lifting and in politics Nirma Sitaraman our finance minister is also doing well. When we talk about an increase in divorce rate I don't agree with this point that women empowerment is the cause of it I think the main cause of increment in divorce rate is lack of bonding of couples and bad personal relations.

Hello everyone, A very good evening to all of you.

This is Ajay Kumar. Today my topic is Women empowerment -a great cause for the increasing divorce rate in India. I do not agree with this. First of all, we all have to know about the women empowerment, simply it means uplifting the status of women in the society in the field of education, healthcare, politics, etc, they have a right to get equal opportunity as that of men and they have also right to solve their problem yourself, which makes them independent on others and it also makes free from domestic violence. It also plays a great role in the development of the country. If we talk about the divorce rate, it happens only when they do not have a good bonding between them and they do not spread their love in a good way that types of reason are the cause of divorce. But giving power to women is not a cause of divorce. That's all.

Thanks for reading my views.

Women empowerment can never be a cause for increasing divorce rate in IN. Indians follow patriarchal pattern of society. From childhood whether it is a girl or boy we are told and have seen that tasks for a girl/boy or a women/ man were segregated rather on discriminative basis. We were brought up in a society where right from family to the politics every aspect is dominated by men. But today in the 21st century world is becoming liberal, equal opportunities are being given to both men and women. But somehow some orthodox people of this patriarchal society cannot digest the truth that women can be better than them and they can also be at the apex of every area. This insecurity among men and others who believe that men are superior and women are not is causing tension in the families and hence in the societies. With coming new changes in the world I think everyone should adapt with the new changes and new thoughts that is the only way we can live in a peaceful and prosperous society.

Women empowerment is not a reason for divorce. It will because of the mind set of men. If a daughter works outside he feels so proud but if his wife goes for a work he can't digest it which is equal to his status. So women empowerment is not a reason for a divorce it all depends on the mindset of the men.

Hi guys.

So as per the topic, I would like to present my views on it.

If you say they are both different but yes somehow connected with each other.

Divorce happens when there ia a misunderstanding or maybe the are not adjusting with each others nature but then why is women empowerment coming in it? Cause our society is male dominating and women are forced to sit back home and earlier no women was allowed to work, so they were fully dependent on men but today as the women are empowered they are self made so no more depended on men and can live alone. Divorce and women empowerment are connected as early years when women were not treated well or given equal rights men used to ill treat women and as women's were dependent on men they could not take any step but used to just tolerate it but today if this happened no need to tolerate it you have opportunities you can live alone and do better it's not about women It's about the behaviour of the society toward them and that must changed, women's thoughts should be respected as men.

As now in the 21st century, they are aware of their rights so they can raise their voice against the violence and molestation harassments so we can say awareness of women empowerment cause for increasing rate in India.

Certainly not. Instead, Women empowerment is the need of power. We live in a free country and most often talk about the right of freedom and equality. But we lose our ground when it comes to treating the women of our society in an equitable manner. Why so? The stigma and attitude which our society has, against women will take India nowhere. Rather India will be pushed back from where she is today. Women are the one who revivifies home, they are the ones who can take India to the next level where it aspires to reach. A better woman makes a better country.

According to the Indian constitution, all have equal rights and freedom irrespective of Gender. I did n't support the statement women empowerment is a cause for increasing divorce rate.

I think women empowerment is not a cause for increasing divorce rate in India. If we think that women empowerment increases the divorce rate it is our backward thinking. Empowering women give her equal status with respect to men. Increased rate of divorce is due to a misunderstanding between partners, being emotionless, being bored with relationship and selfishness etc.

Other causes for divorce in India are.

1. Domestic violence.
2. Cheating your partner.
3. Dowry.
4. Impatient.
5. Effect of Western culture.

According to me, if there is love, care and trust in between partners there will be no chance for divorce.

Women empowerment is the root cause of divorce in India. When women in a job they dominate over their husband. Actually, women took a wrong decision about their life and choose the wrong guy in maximum cases. As a result, divorce occur. In love cases, I know many boys who have relationships with many girls. Girls choose mainly those boys who have many affairs but they know how to impress girls. As a result, divorce occurs.

Pooja K said: (Jan 29, 2019)  
Women empowerment is not a cause for increasing divorce rate in India. There was a time when women were told that marriage is sacred and their ultimate goal was to serve her husband, in-laws and her children. Women were not allowed to dream anything beyond this. They dedicated their entire lives to look after their family. Women had no freedom to complain even if they were subjected to domestic violence or harassment or any other form of violence from in-laws. There was a sense of apprehension among women that being vocal about these things would tarnish their image and they would lose respect for themselves from the society. Also most of the women believed that their husbands were like gods. There is no way her husband could ever do wrong. Many men had clandestine affairs and were involved in infidelity. Many men remarried while still being married to the current wife. A lot of women adjusted their lives according to the needs of their husbands. They respected their husband's wishes even though they didn't like them. Due to lack of education, many women didn't know their rights. Even if women were educated they didn't have the financial independence to look after their children after divorcing their spouses. As a result, many women had to compromise in their marriage.

This has slowly changed over the course of years with women being educated and gaining financial independence. Women can approach the court in case of domestic violence, harassment or any pressure from in-laws regarding dowry for the justice to be served.

But women empowerment is not a cause for increasing divorce rate in India. It is not fair to blame a woman for being educated and living life on her terms.

Divorce rates are high in urban areas. Divorces could happen among the spouses due to 'n' number of reasons-.

- Infidelity (could be a wife or a husband).
-Not a happy marriage.
-Domestic violence.
-Pressure from in-laws regarding dowry.
-Divorce with mutual consent.
-etc, etc, etc.

Even in the urban areas, many believe that a woman's place is confined within the four walls. Many women are asked to give up their professions after marriage to look after their in-laws, husband and children.

A marriage can only sustain if both wife and husband respect each other's wishes and believe that there must be a sense of equality rather than dominating each other.

Good Evening Friends,

According to me, a cause for increasing divorce cases are mainly their relationship will break easily because they are not love each other. And also they are compared to next person's life. They can be feel very lonely or they are feel only selfish. So they are confusing each other and also doubt each other. So the solution is love each other forever.

Women is the main cause for most divorce cases. First is judicial. India judicial supports only women after marriage even though they are bad. They take upper hand by manipulating the law. Second is money and status. Nowadays women don't see whether the boy is a good person or not. After marriage if that boy is bad they go for divorce. Third is caste and religion. It plays important role in women's marriage. They think bringing down a person through divorce is women empowerment even though the boy is a good person. Present generation women are not content with what they have. Increase divorce is not women empowerment. It's women egoistic way of empowerment.

I think the increased rate of divorce has no connection with women empowerment rather it is results of thoughtless marriages performed out of excitement and attraction rather than mutual understanding.

Good morning my dear friends today we all are here to make a group discussion on the topic of women empowerment. A cause of increasing divorce rate in India. Well. In my opinion, it is no because women empowerment is something through which women should get all the rights which were given to men equally. Increasing divorce rates in India is not because of a women empowerment, in fact, that's because of the way of the way of thinking of people irrespective of the gender. There are some stereotypes for women that she should be like this and that all nonsense but is there any kind of stereotype for men no!so I just want to conclude that increasing of divorce rate is not because of women empowerment, in fact, this is because of the lack of understanding and compromise. In life, we all have to learn how to compromise for the sake of well being so that these kinds of problems never come.

No, Women empowerment is not a cause of increasing divorce rate.

Even though women works 24/7to raise their children and to maintain their family they are not getting enough recognition for house chores and home maintenance as this work is unpaid who choose to be homemakers are not considered as working persons in India due to this their self-esteem tend to below.

Yes, Women empowerment is the cause, because in India, women's taking the word women empowerment for granted. Since women are earning more than men many women feel not to get married or think why should they listen or compromise to others, and have become more arrogant and egoistic than women's of previous generations. Women's of this generation want to live life as per their terms and conditions than mutual decisions of their partner.

I have seen many false dowry cases, infidelity in work place, scare men emotionally, keep telling him how he is not up to the mark, I have seen it all around me. When we got married, I was told by my parents that I should treat my mother in law as my own. We drew our boundaries and were very happy with each other. Nowadays, you can't tell any girl anything because they always think they are right. Give and take policy is gone and nobody is a winner ultimately. Nobody has any pity for the tormented males.

Hello everyone.

In my opinion, women empowerment is nothing but the right to run familly or society in proper manner. I agree with the statment that an educated lady can run her familly in better way than an uneducated women because far every child home is frist school and mother is first is teacher so an educated mother can teach decorum and right things to her child in better way and we all know that earlier days women are mostly depend on the male member of her family for every thing and just becouse of this dependency they had to tolerate everything mostly time they are being harrassed molested threatend still they didn't say anything becouse they know that after living him how could the survive so, I think empowermet is neccessary for women to be independent and confident and if we talk about the divorce it is totally depend on the understanding and I would like to say that if are not feeling that your relation is running properlly couple should talk about and try to understand to both but if you are feeling that just becouse of some issues like dowry and giving birth of a girl child you are being harrased and threated you should seperate yourself becouse I think being alone is better than being with devil.

I believe that empowering a women we are making our country's backbone strong and leading towards the development. Talking about divorce its a taboo but there are several causes for it but solely blaming women empowerment its not justified. I would like to express in few points.

First point :women empowerment. PARTIALLY YES! Because they have freedom to take decision if they are not comfortable in any matter. Earlier they have no choice except to depend on male even after being harassed, abused, threaten or being thrashed for dowry. So they can do nothing, just bear the exploitation and remain silent. But now they have freedom to raise out matter and take decision as per them.

Second point :Forced marriage. Some families in order to expand their business empire or just for converting.

Their friendship into relation they force their children to get engaged without seeking their views.

Third point :Misuse of ipc 498 A, can contribute to divorce by falsely accusing or blaming male.

Forth point : Family interference. Sometimes possessive parent's decision for their children mislead them and they don't get a chance to of second thought about their decision.

At the same time we can't ignore the affect of modernisation which is being served us by the media. Some get inspire from them and do as they watch.

So clearly from every direction their in no point in saying that women empowerment is accountable for increasing divorce rate.

Hi Friends,

In my point of view, there is no link between women empowerment and divorce. Women empowerment is a part of equality between Men and Women. It is part of our nation. But I simply regret this, because of women empowerment only there is a chance for divorce is a foolishness one. Divorce is a misunderstanding between two couples. As a woman, I feel very happy because nowadays women freedom is as much in the nation compared to our previous years. So we (women) should use the empowerment in a good way. This empowerment is not for us to fight with men and hurt a man it is our rights and freedom we should use our rights and freedom in the best manner.

According to me, the main cause of divorce in our society is definitely not the women empowerment. It's true that earlier days women were not arguing with their husband as there rite comes in between but as we see socially women are not left behind now a days, they are working with men in shoulder to shoulder. Yes, in some cases we can take this because empowerment broad financial independent for women in our society as well as ego problems between the couples and that ego is leading to divorce. But the main reason behind the divorce are women empowerment sence the equation of our society, broad misunderstanding between husband and wife both and lack of interaction because lack of time multiplied it. And finally misunderstanding concluding to divorce. Nuclear family fashion is also a root cause.

In my point view, women empowerment is not a cause of divorce. Divorce rate depends on the mutual understanding mutual trust and on the compatibility between them. And women empowerment is an entirely different thing. Women empowerment means to give authority to take decision independently. Even educated women can run their family better. She can educate their children properly. Sometimes husbands feel insulted due to their uneducated wife and they started to fight and they don't love her and this becomes the cause of divorce. If the husband is educated then an educated wife or women can read his mind his lifestyle better than uneducated women and can adjust properly. And women empowerment helps in developing the country economically and it creates equality. Hence according to me, women empowerment is not a reason of divorce rate somehow it helps in decreasing the divorce rate.

In my opinion, women empowerment is not a cause for increasing divorce rate in India. Today we are encouraging women to move forward in their life, to lead a better life but that doesn't mean that it leads to the divorce rate. As we refer to the social issue of triple talaq which is considered illegal in India due to which many Muslim women were left by their husbands, Muslim men used to misuse this rule which ruined the life of many muslim Muslim So government has ammended strongly against those men so that there may not be more divorce rates in India.

Hello Everyone.

Yes, I partially agree to this. I feel somehow women empowerment is affecting the rate of divorce.

Earlier women were not free to take divorce even if she is not happy with her husband. She uses to sacrifice her life for her children and family and society. 100 times she uses to think about the society before taking divorce.

But nowadays, women are free to take decision she can take divorce if understanding is no between them.

In India out of 100, only 40% marriages are successful where a couple have an understanding between them, a strong bond between them. Rest are just living for the sake of living and this happens when the women have no source for getting apart. When she is not educated enough to work n grow her children.

But when I say about women empowerment, it has given an option for women to express her thoughts and live her life in her own way.

She can definitely take divorce if she is not happy with her husband.

So yes. I would say that somehow women empowerment is a reason for increasing the rate of divorce.

Women empowerment is not a cause for a number of divorce in India. Which women is capable to handle family and office work both that women having excellent capabilities. Divorce rate increase by their personal understanding between husband and wife. There is no such relation to her employment. If bounding is not good between them then it doesn't matter that women are employed or unemployed. The employee's woman is also supported to development of our country.

Women are working 24/7 hours to raise her children and her family. But she is not getting recognition for the work she has done.

The men's attitude towards this women empowerment should change because if they allow his wife to do a job she will become independent and she will not listen to his words and all. We have to take the example of Mary Kom. She got married and having two sons then also her husband allowed her to box. So all the men should inspire by Mary Kom's husband.

I absolutely don't agree with women empowerment being one of the factors behind increased divorce rate. According to me, divorce has nothing to do with women empowerment. Women empowerment is about strengthening women. It's about educating women. It's about giving equal space in everything be it studies or freedom or many such things. Also educating a woman is not just restricted to that one single person, it's indirectly about educating a whole new generation because she is the one who will strengthen the basic education of her child. Every woman is the backbone of her family. Talking about divorce it's because of lack of mutual trust and desire to solve the problem by having a one to one conversation. If a husband and a wife don't want to get divorced they will automatically try to look for ways to settle the matter. They'll continuously try to look for common grounds. Who doesn't have differences? But divorce is not the solution. I feel these two are entirely different subjects and I personally don't think women empowerment has got anything to do with the increased divorce rate.

No Women empowerment is not the cause for the increased divorce rate. Women empowerment is actually the need of the society because if a woman is empowered and educated then her whole family is benefited. Women not only take care of the family but also provide a helping hand for her husband. She is the backbone of the family.

And talking about divorce, there are many results for it and nun of the causes for divorce directly related with women's empowerment.

Due to empowerment of women, they have come to know their rights to live. I agree with the fact that women's now express their view which was not possible earlier as our society was male dominated, because of this there has increased arguments between husband and wife but getting a divorce is not the right way to end the argument. Both husband and wife should understand the value of every relation and should find a solution to their problems other than divorce.

According to me, increasing divorce rate in India is not because of women empowerment. It is just because of nowadays, women have been very smart. They have decided not to cry but to fight against injustice. Women are nowadays aware of the law, legislation.

Men were cheating with their wife from too many years back. They had extra marital affairs and all. But in those days, women were not too smart to recognize that. But now women are too smart. Nowadays, they have started using a hidden camera, web cam, GPS tracker and they are now able to see their husband. Where is he and with whom?

And another thing, if men are loyal to their wife, respecting her and transparency in their relationship and both should give an equal status and respect to each other, then there is no chance to start conflict and arguments. It just depends on how you are treating your life partner, not on men or women empowerment.

So, every couple in a family is facing a lot of problems. The main thing is an adjustment. For instance, if we take our parents, they were also facing many problems in their lives but they are still living together. I think women empowerment is not a cause for increasing divorce rate in India.

Women empowerment is nowadays warmly welcomed in the society but creates some misunderstanding between the partners but it doesn't become a big issue if they have faith and love between them.

At that no one support her so she could be dependable for her needs. Now senario is change. Women is empowered. So she can take divorse easily and live her life happily which she want and deserve it.

Empowerment means giving power or authority to take independent decisions in order to authorise something. Which is not seen in the case of "Women Empowerment".

There are two faces of coin in women empowerment i.e. professional & personal life.

Talking about the professional life, in our society "Women development" has been treated as " Women empowerment" over the decades. Giving the opportunities to the women of the society to do what a man does, it doesn't empower them. It could be a step towards the development of women in our society. The question arises here - "Why there is a sudden need of women empowerment". There should be justice to the implementation of it. There are many sectors where women in the 21st century aren't treated equally. Before thinking of empowerment, equality has to be taken care in all perspectives. The ratio of female to male is always less in all the fields. This shows we haven't reached the level of equality. The reason of inequality isn't the incapability of a woman always. It's the partial preference chosen by the authority. To attain equality they should define certain ratio which encourages the female candidates to show & enhance their skills. Being judgemental towards the capability of a woman in any field is a hindrance to their development. But many workplaces do not encourage the participation of women in the field of work. Talking about job opportunities few advertisements are meant for only "male candidates". This gender-biased shouldn't be encouraged. Governments have been doing good about it. Few more steps could get us close to empowerment.

Talking about the personal life of a woman. The empowerment not only needed in professional life but also plays a vital role in personal life. A woman is always considered to be "a dependent" on a male whether it's a father or husband for taking their decisions. Also, considered to sacrifice if needed and to do house chores in rural & sometimes in urban areas too. The question arises here -"Is this the reason for male dominating society". A woman should be taken as a perfect example of someone who can play both the roles whether it's personal or professional. To change this mindset every woman on their has to take initiative to let the people around them know that - "what they do at home is a choice not because they have to or not capable of doing other things". Women empowerment could be one of the reasons for divorce not letting your better half grow. But its definitely not the only reason for increasing divorce rate in India.

Yes I think so, but first of all, I want to clear a point that it is better for that woman who live a life in which her husband does not respects her not love her and always trying to dominant on her and do fatal attack on her so in that situation it is better to take divorce and live a happy life.

But on other hand if a woman is not empowered or we can say self-dependent and no one support her than it was very tough situation for her because she have to depend on someone for her need that's why she does not take divorce, on the other hand, self-dependent women can easily take divorce and live a happy life so I think women empowerment is the reason for divorce or we can say that women employment is reason for a lady to live a life which she want and deserve.

Actually, it is right that empowerment is the main reason for increasing divorce rate in India. It is not my sympathy towards patriarchal mentality. It is right that thanks to the feminist movement Indian woman get's liberty and equality. But they often forget the meaning of liberty. They think that liberty means involving in sex with other person after marriage and blaming their husband and their family that they torture her repeatedly after marriage. So the girl and her family are going to the police station and misuse article 498-A. So the family of the inevitable bot is arrested and naturally the girl demands divorce and so easily she is able to collect it.

Hello friends,

According to me, women empowerment is necessary for the benefit of the society in large. For example: if a man is educated and he is capable of doing certain things, why not women? if a women is educated, she can educate the whole family and the surroundings near by. Women are the backbones of the society. And if we say it is a cause for increasing divorce rate then we are demoralizing our own society. Earlier people were not that much educated and they were unaware of their human rights, now people are developing their minds, they have options in their lives, for eg: if you purchased anything and after that you realized oops it not the right thing, what I needed then you can exchange as per your requirement and same is the case with divorce. If the spouse are not satisfied then there is no point of living together.

So, women empowerment is not a cause for increasing divorce rate in India.

I feel, that although WM is not directly responsible for the in increase the divorce rates, it has indirectly exposed the suppression of women in the past.

In the last two centuries, the woman was in dark of her rights, hence, she was taken advantage of by the husband/ in-laws. With WM, she has become aware of her rights and refuses to be exploited.

This refusal results in a divorce, and a collection of these such incidents reflects in an increased divorce rate. That is point one.

Point two. The increasing laws in the favour of women, in the last 30 or so years, has resulted in a pack of unaware women who are basically in the game of misusing these laws eg - divorce law, dowry law - to gain access to the land/ money of the husband/ in laws. This further results in the increase of the divorce rate chart.

So, although WM is not responsible for increased divorce rates directly, it has indirectly exposed the harsh reality of the yesteryears & is also indicative of the issues an unaware empowerment mind can create.

Empowerment means giving power and when a woman is empowered she comes to know about her legal powers which can be used to make her life better. She gets educated and an educated woman can make her child educated. Empowerment provides self-dependence but it has nothing to do with divorce. Everyone needs love and care and love is one of the building blocks of marriage. A working married couple can manage very well if there is a mutual understanding among themselves but the absence of trust love and understanding creates problems. Divorce can be taken anywhere, whether between a rich or the poor. It shows lack of love between the couple and when there is no love a normal couple can't live together under a single roof. So empowerment strengthens not only a woman but also her family and it can never be the cause of divorce.

Wrong Empowerment: Women are wrongly empowered.

Nature and evolution made women a caring and lovable being. Having child and nurturing them is her primal responsibility.

This millennial generation is about Individualism. Anyone can live alone independently.

Corporate culture at work gives a sense of empowerment. It's hire and fire methodology has imbibed into the family. When there is a problem in the relationship, instead of solving together they end up in divorce.

Women should be educated to run their family in the best way which in turn the society becomes better. A well-educated women with moral values can raise a child in a very good way than an employed women who sees her child occasionally.

At first place why do we need women empowerment?

Does this did not happen in previous decades? Why sudden need and requirement to give emphasis to this oh so famous term?


There were times when women were powerful and wanted in family and society and of course she is NOW.

But there are also areas and incidences which show women are being suppressed because of her being a weaker vessel.

Human race saw this and does not want her to be suppressed. It also saw how family and society benefited because of her positive mind.

Taking up responsibilities like child bearing, nurturing and disciplining the child including other family and societal responsibilities has molded her character to be good person. Thus human race feels, this good character soul if empowered will benefit masses (both society and family) At the same time making herself feel wanted, secured leading to happiness.


But if the base thinking is pessimistic. I am for sure this term is misused and many men become victims of it.

And the divorce rates has increased because the woman started reacting. In a family life, both husband and wife should understand each other. Respect each other.

To be very frank women empowerment is not a reason for escalating divorce rate in India.

Supported by lines-.

Women Empowerment basically means educating women, making them aware of their rights, raising voice against injustice. Take two different situations.

In 18th, 19th-century women didn't know much about their rights and actions. They got suppressed by men. They were asked to sit back at home and nurture the child. Men were the source of income, women were not allowed to leave home. In the past people had the notion that if the female of the house goes for work then who will take care of the child, who will look after the home. Parents had a selective perception of women being a liability, they used to have an abortion if the get to know that a toddler is a female. In past, it was humanity which died along with the toddler.

Now the time has arrived where Women are getting more and more support from society and government. India ones used to be a patriarchal society but now our India is changing, changing towards betterment. There are many reforms which give a threshold to be more decisive and powerful and come to dominate the world in the times to come:-.

1. Reserving 1/3 of seats in parliament for women under article 40.

2. Form Rashtriya Mahila Kosh to make credit available to women.

3. Article14 - Which gives right to women to stand equal before law.

4. Stopping Polygamy and Bigamy.

5. Mahila Samiridhi Yojna - For women empowerment.


Divorce happen because of lack of understanding between the couple. Sometimes men can get egoistic because women are earning more than them. Instead of making women empowerment a scapegoat, we should stop harassing each other, live life with serenity, accept the change in the society, make more love, don't break trust, do more of what makes you happy without compromising others happiness, give freedom to your partner, be mature enough to understand what your partner wants from life.

Empowerment is nowhere responsible for divorce in India instead our unreadiness to accept the change is.

Our India stands very low in Gender Parity Index (. 48). If this is improved India Could Boost Its GDP by $. 7trillion by 2025. More than 68 million women can be brought to work.

WOMAN EMPOWERMENT means providing women equal rights in the society as of men.


DIVORCE take place due to the lack of mutual understanding between husband and wife. The man always has domineering nature and the main problem is with EGOISM.

Women empowerment is empowering the women to take their own decisions for their personal dependent. Empowering women are to make them independent in all aspects of mind, thought, rights, decisions, etc by leaving all the social and family limitations. It is to bring equality in the society for both male and female in all areas. Women empowerment is very necessary to make the bright future of the family, society, and country. Women need fresh and more capable environment so that they can take their own right decisions in every area whether for themselves, family, society or country.

Ya friends according to my opinion it not the sufficient cause of divorce in India it is western culture effect and man did not control their senses and I want to give you some point that proves women-empowerment is cause of divorce:

1. If male and females both are government employees then they will not give proper time to their child and also they will not give proper their self.

2. If women will go outside for the job then society things wrong towards women's and husband also and l think the main cause of divorce is Westernisation and thinking of man and women.

I think more than women empowerment it is feminists who are to be blamed for increasing divorces. Feminists advocate a 'my life my choice' kind of life. This is a very selfish view of life. In a society it is rather 'Our life our choice'. Relationships are never constant and must persist through the thick and thin of life. Today due to the selfish feminist point of view, women are advised to walk out of marriage at the slightest discomfort. Instead of encouraging selfishness in the name of empowerment, women must be advised to get over anger, ego, hatred which will help in sustaining a relationship. This so called western way of empowerment increases female ego unnecessarily. Also developing good qualities are necessary for men as well.

According to me, women empowerment is not the cause of divorce. But it provides a tool that enables the women shed their fear. In fact, women empowerment strengthen the familial bonding. Here women empowerment restoring the status and dignity by upholding their rights and making a mechanism for its adherence at all level. So out I rightly deny that women empowerment is the cause of increasing divorce.

According to me women empowerment is not a cause for increasing divorce, but it is surely a pathway for all the women who were not able to raise a voice against the mishaps and fight for their own rights be it taking a divorce or charging someone for his or her bad deeds.

I'm Shreyas.

In my opinion. There is no relation between empowerment of women and divorce. Marriage is a sacred thing and all we know that women are more loyal than men do.

So, empowering women will lead men to increase their financial graph. By empowering women by giving confidence opportunities to women will lead our nation to become the leader of world by 2020. You can screen Hollywood movies. In that movies women are no lesser than men.

So women empowerment means better future of India.

If we will consider some foreign countries where women are as empowered as men then we will observe that their divorce is very common. I think it is more important for a man or a woman to live a happy life than a married life. So if divorces are result of empowerment then it proves we moved toward women empowerment.

But it will take us (men) some time to understand and accept this as we have grown up in male dominating society. But slowly the things will change and this factor will diminish in divorce cases. But for the moment I think it is one of the factors responsible for the divorce cases.
